[ applause ] on "cbs this morning." >> a telescope picked up a signal 94 light years from earth. the signal strong enough to believe it was intentionally sent by aliens. >> here is the signal they received. ♪
7:03 am
[ cheers and applause ] >> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose and gayle king are off this morning. great to have you guys. >> great to be here. donald trump will land in mexico in a few hours for his first meeting with the foreign leader during the campaign. his visit with the president happens before his long awaited speech on immigration policy tonight. >> this surprise meeting follows months of very tough talks from the republican nominee about mexico and illegal immigration. major garrett is in phoenix will trump will speak tonight after traveling to and from mexico. go m to you. rter: good morning. do donald trump's hastily arranged trip to mexico created a media frenzy. trump won't take any reporters
7:04 am
with him. there's little chance for little or productiverng.ns with the mexe that's a good thing. he criticized trump not only his words, but his policy on a big border wall, mass deportations, and the renegotiation of nafta. ahead of a highly anticipated speech tonight, donald trump hit the immigration talking points. >> we're going to secure or border and stop the drugs from pouring in. >> reporter: but dodged the issue dogging him for weeks. deportations of undocumented immigrants living in the u.s. >> we'll be talking about that arizona tomorrow night. >> reporter: trump failed to mention a last-minute trip to mexico taking up the mexican president on his invitation. he prepared trump's nationalist rhetoric to mussolini and
7:05 am
hitler. and the white house, in july, he praised the north american free trade agreement. trump vilified the pact last night. >> we are going to renegotiate the horrible naft'er trade deal. >> reporter: he says this calls for performance. >> who? who? who is going to pay for the wall? >> reporter: and dismisses it without hesitation. >> there is no way that mexico can pay a wall like that. >> reporter: on twitter, president nieto explained it this way. i believe in dialogue to promote mexico's interests and to protect mexicans. for over a year, trump rode criticism of mexico to the republican nomination. >> they are bringing drugs. they are bringing crime. they are rapists. coming across the board is tough hombres it forces many bad people into our country. mexico is killing us. >> reporter: former mexican first lady called that kind of
7:06 am
language hate speech, writing to trump on twitter, although they have invited you, know you are not welcome. pena nieto invited hillary clinton to mexico but the democratic nominee with trump going first must weigh the risks of appearing to be a copycat. clinton released a statement saying in part, what ultimately matters is what donald trump says to voters in arizona, not mexico and whether he remains committed to the splitting up of families and deportations of millions. >> dan senor was a senior campaign manager for the romney/ryan campaign in 2012. good morning. >> good morning. clearly a play of showman ship this morning. will it work? >> it depends on what he is trying to achieve. i think a very basic level what this has the potential to
7:07 am
achieve is just to show that he can deal with foreign leaders, not completely make a mess of himself, an embarrassment when he does so, and looks sort of like a president. these trips, i was involved in 2012 when we went with governor romney to israeli and the uk and poland and these were complex trips, months of planning, security considerations, logistical press events traveled with the huge press corps and foreign press when you're over there, public rallies and, obviously, a lot of mistakes made and it's tough to pull off. this one is pretty simple. they planned it this weekend. is going there and doing a meeting but not clear he is doing any press there and coming back. not a lot can go wrong. >> you worked with mitt romney. he had said during the primary campaign to win the nomination that these 11 million undocumented immigrants should self-deport. in the end he got 27% of the hispanic vote and part of the reason he lost the election. >> right. >> donald trump is not saying they should self-deport. he say he is rounding them up. >> he is going to have a special dedicated deportation and used the word remove, not that they should leave but actually going to physically remove them and force them to relocation.
7:08 am
it's absurd. if trump gets 10% of a latino vote, i would be shocked. >> polls suggest he is 22% right now. your answer there as regarded this weekend echoed what steve bannon, the "the washington post" is reporting said about this visit. it will showcase donald trump's a statesman who can deal directly with mexico, rather brazenly, optical, if nothing else. so what is the risk for donald trump? >> west look. the standard right now -- i don't think is there a real high risk. the standard now for trump is so low like these speeches, right? every time he reads from a teleprompter, everyone says, it's like sisero. if the mexico president comes out and says something critical what came out of the meeting and trump pops back. >> dan, the problem is not a plan. paul ryan has a plan. barack obama has a plan. there is plenty of plans out there. the problem is congress won't pass any of those plans. what is donald trump going to say how he is going to get his
7:09 am
plan through congress? that is what ultimately matters. >> look. i think he doesn't have an answer. by the way, he also should be pressed on did you talk to the mexican president how they are going to spend their money, their tax dollars on building this wall? if you do the math, building the wall, the mexican government, if they pay for it, it's 5% of mexico's gdp and the single largest thing the mexicans are paying for it. the mexican president's approval rate running in the tank and this is a post-spin out of this meeting. >> dan, good to see you. in our next president, we will have vice presidential mike pence about donald trump's trip to mexico and the upcoming campaign and he'll join us ahead here on "cbs this morning." sources tell cbs news the fbi will soon release notes from his investigation from clinton's e-mail server. clin clinton finished a
7:10 am
coast-to-coast visit last night. her latest e-mails handed over by the fbi they say include 30 documents that may be related to the benghazi libya attack that killed four americans. nancy cordes is in cincinnati where clinton will speak to the american legion convention in a few hours. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. clinton returns to the campaign trail today after spending most of the past two weeks raising money. her campaign says it was always the plan to use the end of the summer to refill the coffers but it did come at a price. clinton's 22 fund-raisers in the wealthy enclaves of marriage's vineyard, nantucket, cape cod, hamptons, plus california, netted at least $31 million for her and for the party, but they also fueled a new trump talking point. >> she doesn't do rallies of any consequence. no press conference in, what, 255 days. >> he attacked a judge. >> reporter: clinton did phone into two cable news shows last weeks, promising as she has for months she will do a press conference at some point. >> stay tuned. there will a lot of different opportunities for me to talk to the press.
7:11 am
>> the press should be ashamed of themselves. >> reporter: trump has held at least 14 news conferences this year. >> this sleazy guy right over here. >> reporter: his combative approach is a far cry from clinton's. secretary clinton on foreign policy. she is generally too busy ignoring reporters. >> madam secretary. >> any report on your husband leaving -- >> reporter: clinton took eight questions at a journalism forum earlier this month. >> i may have short-circuited. >> reporter: but two on her two least favorable subjects. >> i have acknowledged repeatedly that using two e-mail accounts was a mistake. >> mexico will be paying for the wall. >> reporter: as the election nears, trump has grown less accessible too. nearly all of his recent tv interviews have been with fox news. and democrats note he still has not released his tax returns or
7:12 am
explained discrepancies in the glowing letter released by his doctor. >> the healthiest individual ever elected to the candidacy so that physical problem that caused him to not serve in the military is cleared up, apparently. >> reporter: trump's troubles have had an impact, it appears, on giving by wealthy donors. a new "usa today" analysis shows that since april rich americans have gave nearly three times as much money to democratic super pacs rthan republican super pac and on the democratic side most of it went to down ballot races who is struggling as trump's ratings remain low a powerful weather system is barreling toward florida's gulf coast. tropical depression nine is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm later today and could become a hurricane before making landfall tomorrow. severe weather warnings cover
7:13 am
most of the state. at the same time, a second depression threatens parts of north carolina. omar villafranca is in clearwater, florida, where the downpours have already begun. >> reporter: the clouds are only expected to drop 1 to 2 inches of rain but the storm 400 miles out in the gulf that everybody is keeping a close eye on. from pounding rain and flooded streets in florida. to the dangerous surf in the carolinas. parts of the east coast are already feeling the impacts from two powerful tropical weather systems. and bracing for more as a troubling forecast looms. >> we are going to have storm surge and we are going to have rain and we are going to have flooding and we have the potential of tornadoes and we are going to have rip currents. >> reporter: as one system
7:14 am
brushes the north carolina toast coast, another is churning in the gulf. that system has the potential to dump 15 inches of rain in parts of florida before making its way across the peninsula and delivering a second round of severe weather to the carolinas later this week. the system is expected to make landfall tomorrow and coastal flooding is expected in florida's big ben before that system moves across to georgia and the carolinas. >> wow. looks wet there. omar, thank you. two powerful hurricanes in the pacific are threatening hawaii. madeline is a category 2 hurricane with maximum wind of 90 miles an hour. it is expected to pass south of hawaii's big island tomorrow. right behind it, lester is a category four storm and will pass by this weekend. the international space station shows the scale of the storm from more than 200 miles above earth. isis says one of its top leaders is dead. the terror group says strategist and chief spokesman abu muhammad al adnani a was killed in aleppo, syria.

donald trump visits mexico today before a speech on immigration policy in arizona. mexi mexico's president enrique pena nieto says he invited both. he's compared that language to that of hitler and musolini and says mexico will not pay for trump's proposed border wall. >> at a rally in washington last night, trump repeated that he would secure the border as president. trump has criticized mexico from his campaign's beginning and promised it will pay for a wall. >> when mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. that wall will go up so fast your head will spin. mexico in fact will pay for the wall 100%. they are making so much money, mexico, they're taking our business -- >> are you saying he can't do his job because of it? >> look, he's proud of his
8:03 am
heritage. we're building a wall. he's a mexican. mexican government forces many bad people into our country. we are also going to secure our border and stop the drugs from pouring in and destroying our country. >> john heilemann is managing editor of bloomberg politics and co-host of the circus and got nice glasses he just cleaned here on the show. >> they are pretty fly. >> can you see me better? >> yes, i want to have full visibility of this incredible table. >> yes, nice to see you. well, we have full visibility after this speech tonight with donald trump earlier today his campaign manager said there will be no reversal of his current policy. so what's the point? >> well, it's not clear what his current policy is. so it would be -- it may be there's no reversal of the current policy, but we don't know what his policy is right now. >> because? originally said he would round up and deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants. >> yes. >> then he suggested a jeb bush like plan suggested those who have been here and paid back
8:04 am
taxes. >> all the above and not softening and i'm hardening it's all unclear. the crucial is he's going to emphasize all the things he has been clear about. he's not wavering on building the wall. he's going to talk about the wall. he's going to talk about enforcing existing wall, he's going to talk about a wide variety of things. the key issue that every republican has to face is the question of what to do with 11 million or so undocumented immigrants in this country illegally. that question is the devil every republican including every republican who wants to be tough on immigration because there are huge practical issues. and huge political issues with actually trying to deport 11 million people. trump is now facing the fact that his base loves that idea, but the general public does not like that idea at all and recognizes that it's impractical and inhumane. so where's he going to come down? i think he's going to try to fudge the issue and ob fi skate around it. we don't know what he believes or will say. >> there will be added context
8:05 am
tonight because he will have returned from a meeting in mexico with mexico's president. >> yes. >> pure optics then? >> well, again, this is a hugely high risk thing he's doing, right? i mean, as you guys pointed out mexico's president hasn't been particularly friendly to donald trump in the past. he did issue an invitation to both candidates to come. trump decided i believe at the insistence or urging of his new campaign ceo steve bannon to go and do this thing. is it going to be full of conflict? are they going to get in a fight? or is it going to be a standard issue presidential nominee goes to a foreign country visit where they come out and say we had a full and frank discussion and mr. trump goes back home? >> what does trump have to gain? >> well, he has to gain the same thing that every nominee of every party that ever goes and meets with a foreign head of state has to gain, which is he looks like a president going to a foreign country. again, if it goes well, and is calm and peaceful, it shows trump is in a position even though he's adopted tough rhetoric against mexico to be able to come out and say, you know what, we've had our differences in the past but we can do business.
8:06 am
this trump administration, the president of mexico, we have our differences but we can get work done together and try to solve this problem. which is a problem for both countries. that's what trump will argue if it goes well. you could argue if it goes badly that there are some ways in which trump could capitalize politically on that with certain parts of his base. but it is a combustible, unpredictable thing to throw in the middle of this day for him, which is already going to be a really big day in his campaign. >> is it an effort to get the hispanic vote? >> you know, there's -- i think the most analysts and people around trump seem to suggest that more what he's trying to do on immigration front is to try to put at ease white college educated suburban mainly women who have become really uncomfortable with his rhetoric on all matters related to diversity. so by softening his stance, by becoming a little more mainstream he's trying to say to them i'm not as troubling or for some people as racist as you think i am.
8:07 am
everyone needs to calm down a little bit. and it's actually directed more at those core republican voters than it is at actual hispanics. >> all right. john, thank you. well, some veterans are supporting san francisco 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick and his protest of the national anthem. the football star received criticism for refusing to stand for the anthem before last week's preseason game. he vows to continue his protest of the star spangled banner until he sees significant change in american race relations. >> many veterans were among those who criticized the gesture, but some are now expressing support online with the hash tag #veterans. others said they support his motivation because they do not support police brutality and some did not specifically comment on kaepernick's message but said they agree with his right to protest. really does know what you're saying. ahead, we look at the ground breaking research showing dog

there are is a lard element of hand assembly there too. >> you are investing high performance race cars at the same time you're working on making drivers obsolete. what is the future for driverless cars? >> well, it's coming. you know, we are working very hard on autonomous driving but, you know, and you're right, a car like this, this is a driver's dream. >> yes. >> and so we are going to be a bit schizophrenic for a while. we will have autonomous vehicles on the road with vehicles that are being driven by people. >> were you concerned about the dangers that come along with driverless cars? >> not concerned, but it's something we are going to have to always work on and work out. that is why you won't see an explosion of these vehicles. you will see them introduced in a very measured way so we do get real world experience. >> technology, where do you see it? what sort of time frame? >> the technology is developing
8:47 am
very quickly. we said we would have one ready by 2021. i think the issue is the regulation and society's acceptance around it. >> it's so interesting because personal car sales reached record highs in 2015, yet less than a quarter of 16-year-olds have driver's license. like this new change is happening we are watching before our eyes and that trend has been declining. when do you see that as a problem for ford and other automakers where people stop buying cars like they have in the past? >> it's an opportunity, really not a problem. i think the way people access vehicles will be different. you've already ever seen that with uber and lift and the ride hailing companies. we will participate in all of that too. our business model will change and we are'ing thanti anticipat and looking forward to it. rural and urban transportation will change much slowly. we will live in this buy fifurc
8:48 am
world and rest will change but more slowly. >> do you see it all, all rivers flowing together? >> ultimately, it has to, because the technology going into the vehicles willing into all vehicles, eventually. yes. but, you know, i love to drive. and, you know, i'm a car nut. and will always be. so will i access a ton of vehicles? sure i will, for some things but i'll also want to get in my car and drive for other things. >> the question is will you own a vehicle like this one? >> i got serial number one coming and i can't wait! >> technology! >> you're a fit guy so clearly i could barely fit in this guy. pget in there with heels, i o guarantee you that! and you did very well. >> can i ask you quickly? because the larger political debate, donald trump is heading to mexico. he is criticized for -- ed an absolute disgrace for ford to be building 1.6 billion dollar plant there. ford has said this is going to
8:49 am
create a lot of jobs, 3,000 jobs. why don't those jobs belong in the united states? >> well, they do. in fact, we have added many, many more jobs in the u.s. than in mexico and it's important. we have been in mexico over a hundred years, so this isn't some new thing. but for every job we have added in mexico, we have added a multiple of that in the u.s. and we are continuing to. so we are doing both. one of the things that henry ford actually started with was he believed that we should make vehicles all around the world and so we always have. we have always been a very international company for well over a hundred years. but we have more u.s. jobs than we do mexicans. >> thank you for being here and congratulations. >> thank you very much. >> you can watch the rest of the ford racing story on september 6th on the next edition of "60 minutes." you're watching "cbs this morning." ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
